, we got off the phone a short while ago from a official in the u.s. embassy in cairo. that person maintains line that american authorities are working with egyptian authorities for the safe release of the three. there could be developments in the next few hours but so far nothing new on that. it happened on friday as you said on egypt's sinai peninsula. this mission group was said to be on their way to israel after perhaps a visit to that mt. sinai site when the incident happened. armed bedouin tribes people, boarding the bus and demanding a few people get off. the word we're getting is that the pastor, michel louis offered himself instead of other passengers. he was taken along with that woman, along with their tour guide. the demand is that the uncle of the main leader of this, these hostage-takers should be released from a alexander, egypt jail. he said is being jailed on drug chars. the word we're getting egyptian authorities are not budging yet on that demand, jon. jon: what has been the reaction back home from the pastor's con agation, et cetera? >> you can imagine how conce
on fire fantasies about communists coming up the canal to come get us in the middle of the night, those have been around for a while, in the 1970s and the 1980s. the panama canal was the fast and furious, birth certificate, the president is a secret muslim conspiracy theory of its day. when that panama canal conspiracy theory was lighting up the tin foil hats of the generation ago, it was an ambition politician named ronal reagan who took that issue from the fringe and decide today mainstream it into national mainstream republican politics. he based his presidential campaign in part on this insane idea that the panama canal was basically an american state that we can't let the communists steal this american thing from us. he mainstreamed this paranoid far right fantasy that if we went along with our treaty obligations to let panama run its own canal, then america would seize to exist. we would be destroyed as a nation. if panama got control of the panama canal, that would be the beginning of a very quick and bloody end for america. this worked great for ronald reagan in political terms.

've been talking so much about. it will a tough time for all of us but a tough time for fruits and vegetables. some farmers are rushing to pick crops before they die. growers in burlington, vermont, grabbing heads of lettuce out of the ground so they can still sell them. they say the heat is not just affecting crops though. they are keeping folks at home in the air-conditioning and out of the stores where they can buy some of that lettuce. jon: we're talking about the historic drought affecting much. ground. the crops, and farmers how it will affect all of them. how it will affect the price of food we eat. it is hurting commercial traffic on the mississippi river. the drought is causing some areas to dry up making it too shallow for barges and tugboats to float on parts of the river. in mississippi the river is down to six feet. it is expected to go lower. this time the river was 22 feet deeper. jenna: takes a lot to do that. there is more heat on the way for some of us but others will get some relief. the trouble when you mix those two things together you can get some very big
this tragedy. she's live with us. take us back to what happened in douma on june 29th. >> reporter: the reason why it's taken three weeks to get our hands on that video is because the activists that wanted to shoot it were stuck there for well over a week and it was an ordeal to get the footage from damascus to us here in lebanon. we have to warn that the images are disturbing. the power is out in the streets. the three activists don't dare shine a light. there's a sniper lurking. gunfire in the distance forces them to pick up the pace. the activists are part of the oppositions media operation. they smuggled themselves into the damascus suburb last month and risked their lives to document this. a massacre said to have taken place just hours earlier. among the corpses strewn about, that of a little girl. a man points to one of bodies and says he was executed, a civilian. points to a second corpse and adds this is his cousin, shot because he tried to save him. residents are readying the bodies for burial. blood soaking through the funeral sheets. the names of the deceased scrawled. it's a grim r

into some trouble because they used code words with his wife to move money around. they thought they were being clever like take 75 cents out of the bank account. you fool! everybody knows it is a code word. it is not actually 75 cents. he's using code words to describe a benefactor that apparently according to him offered to pay his legal defense fund. who is it? sean hannity. now that's a story that global broke. we'll duke them in a second. remember zimmerman's original attorneys, when they were quitting the case, they said this. >> we learned he had called sean hannity of fox news directly, not through us and we believe i can't confirm this, we believe he spoke directly with sean. off the record. he's not even willing to tell us what our client told him. >> cenk: that's interesting. then sean hannity actually went on air and talked about his private conversations with george zimmerman as well. >> for a few weeks we have been pursuing an interview with mr. zimmerman to give him a chance to tell hi

out these types of massacres. it's difficult for us to determine fact exactly what is happening because the government is not allowing us access into the country. it continues to claim it is fighting these terrorist organizations with some sort of foreign agenda. >> that's why this tape was so important to underscore the humanitarian crisis and tragedy at the same time. thank you so much. we appreciate it. >>> we've got a lot more to cover this hour. take a look. still in clues, still no answers. >> it's just baffling to try to figure out the pieces to the puzzle. looking at it, it doesn't make any sense. >> it's as though they disappeared in thin air in broad daylight. >> family members brace for the worst. >>> two armed men storm into a florida cafe ordering everyone to the ground. just when you thought that was the end of it, this guy comes to the rescue. >>> another unbelievable rescue caught on video. a 7-year-old girl falls from a third story window right into the armies of a hero. >> she was still standing there. i just positioned myself. hopefully i would catch her. i'm
major non-nato ally. the u.s. will keep up defense, security and economic relations with afghanistan even after the withdrawal. >> i am pleased to announce today that president obama has officially designated afghanistan as a major non-nato ally of the united states. we see this as a powerful symbol of our commitment to afghanistan's future. >> afghanistan joins nations like japan and australia on the non-nato list. shortly after the announcement, clinton and karzai left for japan for a meeting of international donors. before heading to afghanistan, secretary of state clinton was in paris. leaders are searching for a solution to the bloodshed in syria at the hands of assad's regime. russia and china opposed efforts to have asaid removed from power. >> i will tell you frankly, i don't think russia and china believe they are paying any price at all. nothing at all for standing up on behalf of the assad regime. the only way that will change is if every nation represented here directly and urgently makes it clear that russia and china will pay a price. >> clinton argued
, is joining us. we're also waiting for ana navarro. the typical politics surrounding this event, as i've been reading through and other times that joe biden has spoken at various events, i wonder what he's going to say and if he's going to cause a stir in biden's style. >> well, as you know, joe biden is quite capable of giving a very strong and capable speech. this is an audience that he is familiar with. as chairman for many years, joe biden championed equality for women and other minorities. this is an opportunity to talk about the presidential record on those issues and the president record on the economy and the affordable care act and how it helps other families, how to help small businesses and people with pre-existing conditions and other americans. so i think joe biden will respond to mitt romney but on his purpose today is to remind this audience of what president obama has accomplished in the area of civil rights and equal justice for all americans. >> so ana navarro, i know you were joining us on this conversation, we're waiting for joe biden to step up to the mike. what do you th
were joining us on this conversation, we're waiting for joe biden to step up to the mike. what do you think about president obama sending joe biden to this event? >> well, you know, vice presidents are good for a few things. you send them to the burials of foreign leaders and the places you don't want to go. we were just seeing pictures from a few minutes ago at the auditorium and there's a lot of empty seats. i don't know if it's biden or -- people seem to be running late for joe biden today. i think that might explain some of the delay. there's a lot of empty chairs in that room right now. >> well, ladies, i am going to please ask you to stand by while those seats do get filled and they obviously get the lights ready for joe biden to step up to the mikes there at the naacp. donna, ana, stay with me. we will join the speech and we'll talk about it afterwards. in >>> meanwhile, it's damming, it's scathing, and it's what a lot of people already suspected. we're talking about louis freeh and his investigation into the jerry sandusky case. his report just issued a short while ago reveals
